Really enjoying seeing behind the scenes and the amount of preperation that goes into state visits.

I was thinking that. And no retirement.

2 days off a year ...l

Thoroughly enjoying it, I always love these little behind-the-scenes glimpses into the Queen's life, and it's particularly interesting hearing from Charles, Anne etc.

Unashamed Royalist here. smile

What were guests supposed to do with the pineapples?

I like the idea of having your own butter stamp.

I'm surprised how quickly I've forgotten the various events last year, royal and Olympic/Paralympic that made it such a special year.

I loved the river pageant. We watched it from my office balcony.

she's such an interesting lady and this programme has shown her at her best smile

She is normal, she's just a person.

AlwaysOneMissing Sun 17-Mar-13 20:45:22

I am loving it, what a woman! I love the royals smile

She is actually surprisingly normal and quite witty isn't she?

difficultpickle Sun 17-Mar-13 20:42:06

Can spell it too - pageantry blush

difficultpickle Sun 17-Mar-13 20:41:06

I do like the pagentry. Ds can't wait until he gets to sing for the Queen.

difficultpickle Sun 17-Mar-13 20:39:13

True.

MrsDoomsPatterson Sun 17-Mar-13 20:35:53

Watching it thinking what a life of utter privilege she has really had.

Waswondering Sun 17-Mar-13 20:34:07

Watching as a pro-monarchist smile

difficultpickle Sun 17-Mar-13 20:32:55

She looked stunning didn't she? She probably had it made.

I want to know where you can buy coats like the one worn by the salmon skin hat creator.

difficultpickle Sun 17-Mar-13 20:29:55

Anyone watching. I'm fascinated at the behind the scenes look but am not a royalist (unlike ds!).
